What happens if you click on the taskbar-icon of Windows-Explorer, the same "Unspecified Error" ? :unsure:

I had that on a laptop twice a few years ago. Solutions 2 and 4 on this appuals webpage worked for me then. Granted back then, that article in specific wasn't written.
Thank you, system restore did work and solved the problem, but at the end of system restore, after it did a restart, it said it's not done fully, due to AV or something.
But after all, it solved the problem.
Anyway, to make things smooth, I will do a clean installation of 20H2.

try "sfc /scannow" and "Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth" commands within cmd

Edit: Sorry, already mentioned on one of the websites in the post of @silversurfer.
